Disney will be giving D23 Expo attendees a close-up look at the new Star Wars-themed lands hitting Disneyland and Walt Disney World in 2019.

Disney announced Saturday the new land will be called Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

On Thursday, the company unveiled video and images of a large-scale model of the theme park attractions ahead of D23, where it is on display.

The two lands, currently under construction, will give guests a chance to take the controls of the Millennium Falcon on a secret mission and experience a "climactic battle" between the First Order and the Resistance, it was previously revealed on the Disney Parks site.

Concept art for Disneyland's upcoming 14-acre attraction was released last summer. Star Wars Land will be the largest-ever single-themed expansion at the theme park, according to Disney.

The official Star Wars Twitter also posted a series of images of the model. See the pics below.
